As long as you have completed any probation or parole for the conviction there is no Arizona law which precludes you from gun ownership. The problem you DO have is that you still are not legally allowed to purchase a firearm under FEDERAL law. Any purchase which requires an NCIC background check is...Read more »
How can they put a "thief alert" on my account when they know I found the wallet, it's on tape that I picked it up, when they called for me to return it at that point I no longer had it, I placed in mailbox to be returned.
Should you find yourself in a similar situation in the future, the better course of action may be to return the wallet to an employee - a manager if that would make you more comfortable - instead of leaving the store with the wallet. In your current circumstance, however, your best course of action...Read more »

This is a tricky question to answer because there are many specific things that can happen that need to be evaluated. However, the quick and simple answer is that as long as the police are conducting an investigation they are allowed to detain you. Now, there are other legal things to bring into...Read more »
Burglary in the 3rd degree is a class 4 felony. If the person does not have any prior felonies (among other issues) the range of sentencing is: probation -- 1 year -- 1.5 years -- 2.5 years -- 3 years -- 3.75 years. I cannot get any more specific in answering your question but if you know someone...Read more »
violent crime. In October she developed breast cancer and after eight months has not been started on therapy, she is presently at stage 3a. In similar cases as dire as this how can she get a earlier release or furlough to receive life saving care. her release date is Feb. 2020.
One of the best ways to see if someone has a warrant is to contact the Department of Public Safety at 602-223-2233. They will ask for your name and date of birth in order to look up if you have a warrant and will be able to tell you right then and there.
The answer is fairly simple however the process can be complicated. Essentially, you have to contact the MVD and have them provide you a copy of your driving record. You can typically do this online or in person. Then, on the report you will be able to see which court, if any, have a hold on your...Read more »
The short answer is yes. If the statute of limitations (the time frame in which the prosecutor must charge a defendant for a crime after commission of the crime) has not "expired" (the technical legal term is "run"), the prosecutor may charge a second defendant for the same crime. This often occurs...Read more »

I'm writing a screenplay based on true events, and one of the crimes the main character commits is disinterring a body without a permit. He's not a family member. He's using the organs of the corpse to replace the ones in the body of a woman he murdered. So my full question is this: If a person... Read more »

They eliminated suspended license as justification for impounding a vehicle but a REVOKED license will still get the vehicle impounded. Since no license is equivalent to revoked, law enforcement will likely impound the vehicle. The registered owner can petition for an early release of the vehicle...Read more »
The short answer is "yes." Most courts will expect you to have completed all the requirements of your sentencing before considering a set aside but even that is not a hard and fast rule. I would imagine your chances of success would be higher if you HAVE successfully completed any jail time,...Read more »
My son is 15 He was released on intense probation to his father and now his father is saying he can’t live with me until he is off probation in a year. I wanted to know what my rights are. His dad has been gone for almost 2 years and just came back when my son got arrested.
You will need to check the Intensive Probation Order (IPO). The IPO is an order from the judge (or probation) that allows him to stay somewhere. This is not a decision from the father. You may be able to contact the judge or probation officer to have them allow your son to stay with you.
Since I cannot imagine you were placed on IPS for a misdemeanor charge, I will assume the conviction which landed you on probation was a felony. Previous felonies are one of the factors that a sentencing judge may consider when determining whether or not to hand down an aggravated sentence. Your...Read more »

They did not do anything to the neighbor that urinated outside. The front yard of the neighbor is open to a public road. They... Read more »

If the answer is no, as it appears to be here, then you may capture video without breaking Arizona...Read more »
Your question is in criminal law but there is no plaintiff in criminal law. Without any further information, it seems there would definitely be a conflict if a city attorney were representing a civil plaintiff against a city employee but that conflict could likely be waived by the plaintiff.

Maybe. If convicted of any criminal offense, jail is always a possibility. It depends the the criminal conviction. For some crimes, jail or prison is mandatory. For some offenses, such as a first time conviction of the personal use of an illegal drug (except methamphetamine), probation is...Read more »
